Are all the 5 toppers in NEET UG Muslim? Know the truth

Shoaib Aftab topped the exam by scoring 720 marks. Shoaib is being appreciated on social media. Along with this, a list is also being shared by telling the top 5 candidates. All the names in this list are Muslim.

News Verification: Our source from AYUPP did the research and found that, out of the names of the top 5 toppers of the 'NEET 2020' exam, four names are not on the merit list on the website of the National Testing Agency. Odisha's Soyeb Aftab and Delhi's Akanksha Singh securing 720/720 to grab top honor.

Marks of Akansha Singh, who secured rank - 2, are also equal to topper Shoaib Aftab. However, Shoaib has been declared a topper under the tie-break policy. Under this, the older candidate is considered a topper. Shoaib is 18 years old, while Akanksha is 17 years old.

The real topper list are as follows.
